Piece of the Week: Lauren X Khoo’s Rooster Ring

With the Lunar New Year upon us, there could be no jewel more appropriate for “Piece of the Week” than this delightfully playful ring.

Lauren X Khoo’s Rooster ring is 18-karat gold plated in black and raspberry-colored rhodium ($5,300).

New York--With the Lunar New Year upon us, there could be no jewel more appropriate for National Jeweler’s “Piece of the Week” than Lauren X Khoo’s delightfully playful Rooster ring.

The Lunar New Year begins Saturday, as the Year of the Monkey ends and the Year of the Rooster starts.

Lauren X Khoo is the namesake brand from Lauren Khoo, the Singapore-born designer who splits her time between Hong Kong and New York.

Khoo’s broad education in architectural studies, art history, gemology and jewelry design are reflected in her innovative creations, which transcend the bounds of typical fine jewelry, incorporating vivid color and youthful vigor with statement gemstones and technically sophisticated motifs.

The designer’s series of Chinese New Year animal jewelry commemorates each of the 12 symbols in ring and pendant form.

This Rooster ring is made of 18-karat gold and plated in black and raspberry-color rhodium. It retails for $5,300 and is available for purchase by e-mailing
